Report: CU to hire Joe Bowden as the new inside linebackers coach. Thoughts?
  • A former teammate of (likely) new defensive coordinator Chris Wilson, Bowden certainly will be able to work with the new coaching staff, and has experience recruiting in Texas. Fingers crossed (64%, 98 Votes)
  • Love it ... An All-American at Oklahoma, eight years as a player in the NFL, coaching experience at both the NFL and collegiate ranks ... What's not to like? (27%, 41 Votes)
  • Okay, so we're getting a coach who has been the defensive coordinator since 2017 ... at Division II Missouri Baptist. Let me guess - CU was his only new job offer. Color me disappointed. (9%, 14 Votes)

Report: CU losing tight end coach Taylor Embree, hired to coach running backs for the New York Jets. Thoughts?
  • As with the defensive coordinator and strength and conditioning positions, I would prefer to withhold judgment until we know who the replacements will be. Fingers crossed for quality new coaches (52%, 169 Votes)
  • Sorry to hear about it, and the timing is not great. CU needs some continuity in the program, and Embree was a good young coach. Sorry to see him go (27%, 87 Votes)
  • Actually a positive for the program. If Karl Dorrell is having young coaches plucked by the NFL, it's a good sign of his ability to form a talented staff (21%, 66 Votes)

Another good day for the Buff Nation. Which news from Monday would you rate as the most impressive?
  • That Karl Dorrell was named the "First Year" Coach of the Year, joining a list which includes Steve Spurrier, Chip Kelly, Urban Meyer, Lincoln Riley, and Ryan Day (47%, 125 Votes)
  • That the CU men's basketball team entered the USA Today coaches poll. May not seem significant until you realize CU has been ranked in the coaches' poll a total of 32 times ... in school history (33%, 88 Votes)
  • That McKinley Wright earned his third Pac-12 Player of the Week this year - and fifth overall - the first player with five career POTW honors in the Pac-12 since 2010 (20%, 51 Votes)

Which news from Sunday would you rate as the most impressive?
  • That the CU women's basketball team knocked off No. 1 Stanford in overtime - the first win over a No. 1 team in school history. Well done, Buffs! (58%, 209 Votes)
  • That the CU men's basketball team is ranked No. 7 in the nation in the NET Rankings (the rankings used to select teams for the NCAA tournament). Highest ranking in school history! (18%, 63 Votes)
  • That CU received a commitment from a former five-star safety/outside linebacker from Oklahoma (with two years of eligibility, no less) (16%, 56 Votes)
  • That the football team was ranked No. 30 in the final CBS rankings. A nice tribute for the Buffs (especially with Nebraska at 78, Michigan State at No. 90, and CSU at No. 110) (8%, 30 Votes)

Colorado defeats Stanford, 77-64, to finish off a 3-0 week. Thoughts?
  • A very solid team win. Buffs broke away late in the first half, and didn't allow the Cardinal within eight the rest of the way. Welcome to the Top 25 (on Monday), plus some national recognition! (49%, 144 Votes)
  • Four players in double figures, but none higher than McKinley Wright's 14. This may be the best TEAM Tad Boyle has ever assembled. Excited about the future of Buffs' basketball (32%, 93 Votes)
  • Hard to find much to complain about, but ... CU has been good in mid-season under Tad Boyle in the past, but faltered down the stretch. Fingers crossed that this season will be different (19%, 55 Votes)
